Notices for December 26, 2021

AS MOST OF YOU KNOW, we have a CONFIDENTIAL prayer ministry at St. Paul’s. Thirteen committed members from our church will faithfully pray for your prayer requests. Please email Judy Byrne at splcprayerministry@gmail.com. No prayer request is too small or too big! We’re here to pray for you.

DAUGHTERS OF FAITH will NOT be meeting in December, but we WILL be meeting on Sunday, January 2nd and Sunday, January 30th from 2:00 – 3:30pm. Please join us for a study on Eve, prayer, snacks and fellowship. Friends are always welcome.  Please RSVP to Judy Byrne

AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, and some may not, St. Paul’s has a dedicated team of women who have volunteered to make meals for church families during times of need.   Needs come in a variety of reasons: illness, surgery, loss of a loved one, etc.   All requests for this help should be made to Pastor Mongeau. He may also offer this help as needs arise. He then will notify me of the need and I send an email to our team asking for volunteers. All information is kept as confidential as you want it to be. The volunteer preparing the meal will contact the individual to make arrangements for delivery. Many times, meals are left in the church freezer for members to pick up at their convenience.  I, too, may make contact to find out if there are dietary restrictions that should be followed.  When a request is made, not every team member is expected to help, only if you can.  Our team has lovingly been preparing meals for the past 3+ years. We will always welcome new helpers, so please let me know if you would like to be included on the team. Pastor Kevin and I are always available to answer questions. Please contact Leslie Denton for more information. Thank you.
